Not long before he was born, my parents asked me if I had any suggestions for what we should call the new baby. They very specifically asked for a Bible name. I believe this was to prove to their new church friends that the religion thing was sticking. I thought about it quite seriously before giving them my answer.
"I think we should name the baby Jesus."
Yeah, you try explaining to a five-year-old why if you're requesting a Bible name you shouldn't just go with the star of the whole show!
And then they named him Rob. I may be rusty on my Bible knowledge but I don't remember a whole lot of Robs in there.
Babynames.com: The meaning of the name Robert is Bright FameBright Fame. That just oozes Jesus.
P.S. I finished my first book for 2010 yesterday. 24 more to go!
P.P.S. Is "oozes Jesus" appropriate?
